Despite the current economic climate, VS EXPRESS, part of Devonshire Window Systems, increased sales by 23% in the last year, thanks largely to the Spectus vertical sliding sash window. Managing Director Darran Round decided to specialise in manufacturing vertical sliders four years ago and hasn’t looked back since: “We used to buy in our vertical sliders, but became increasingly frustrated with the unpredictable quality and lack of customer service. Manufacturing sliders is a big investment and much different to making casements. The tolerances are much finer and the quality has to be second to none for the product to perform perfectly. This degree of knowledge and experience is exactly where we are.”
“I am very proud of our team and our achievements,” continues Darran. “We focus on keeping our customers happy, from pricing and ordering through to onsite technical assistance and training. By providing a top quality product and service, we “Take the stress out of VS.” Our website www.vsexpress.co.uk also hosts a helpful Technical Section where the latest order forms and section details can be downloaded.
“The VS market is a major opportunity for fabricators and installers but you need to have the right product and strong support throughout the supply chain. Spectus provides all those things.”
From its 4,000 sq foot factory, VS EXPRESS currently fabricates 50 vertical sliders a week with eight employees dedicated to this expanding sector of the business.
